  1. Damn, that is one ugly Olympic Stadium, nothing like the initial proposals, the last trully iconic Olympic Stadium was the Birds nest in Beijing in 2008.
  2. If there's a clear example of what an Expo can do to a city it is Lisbon, the eastern part of the city was an industrial wasteland, now it is one of the more fashionable and expensive parts of Lisbon.
  3. Spain bid for Euro 2004 but lost heavily, the end result was something like 9 votes to Portugal, 1 to Austria-Hungary 0 to Spain
  4. The Portuguese song is chosen, the final was held in my hometown, the birthplace of our country
  5. https://www.publico.pt/mundo/noticia/o-espirito-olimpico-no-rio-tomara-que-acabe-logo-1737743
  6. The protests in Portugal were justified, they even should have been greater in order to cause the fall of this right wing government, but in Brasil's case for the outside looker these protests are unexpected.
  7. All is not well in Brasil, what would happen if these protests happen again during the world cup or Olympics?
  8. Foi uma piada, tu é levas tudo muito a sério, muito pouco brasileiro da tua parte.
  9. Rink hockey, futsal, beach soccer, baseball, bowling.
  10. I'm not planning to attend the next olympics, I didn't go to london olympics, wich are less than 2 hours away by plane.
  11. I don't have a problem with Brazil, it's not a country that I want to visit (except maybe Recife), but I don 't have a problem with it. My first post was a joke, you reacted badly and I responded, that's it.
  12. Portugal establishes colonies on all continents, but its because of brazillians that they speak portuguese not the portuguese people that settled those places? Funny joke Just so you know, I am self employed in an established business and I have several brazillian clients who were forced to come to Portugal because they weren't earning enough money in brasil. We may be passing through a bad time in terms of public finances, but we are hardly on our knees, we don't have favelas, we don't need to send the army into our worst neighbourhoods just so they calm down. If Brasil is in a so much better place why is that we have hundreds of bars filled with brazillian women selling their company to men in exchange for money?
  13. that ended almost 200 years ago, enough time to develop the country into an world power, still nowhere near that. In this day and age Brazil should have been way more advanced soccially, culturally and economically than it is.
  14. still way better than brazil, as for our standard of living, that's due to several factors including 50 years under a dictatorship and no natural resources. While Brazil has an abundance of natural resources, what's its excuse?
  15. Big enough to found and colonize a country twenty times its size
  16. In terms of debt compared to GDP yes, but not overall debt.
  17. That's a joke, right? Why would I be jealous of Brazil? We have a lot more safety, standard of living, etc etc. It was a joke, for a country with many problems and inequalities, you are very sensitive to criticisms. Relax, life is just two days, carnival is three.
  18. My bet: Caipirinhas Escort Girls Telenovelas Guns & Drugs Favelas
  19. The only the brasucas can top this is if Gisele Bundchen lights the cauldron naked.
  20. I'm not fluent in Brazillian History but from what I know they should'n be ashamed of it, it's not as proud or significant as English, French or Portuguese History but it should be celebrated as well, even Slavery was important, Brazil would be a totally different country today if it haven't had slavery, the music, culture and brazillian way of being would be completely different.
  21. I hope they make a reference to Pedro Alvares Cabral and D. Pedro
  22. Too much picanha, fried bananas and caipirinhas are bad to your heart
  23. Expo 98 in Lisbon was a great success, it changed a significant part of Lisbon from an industrial wasteland to a new centrality for the city. The recent and very successful NATO summit was held there.
  24. I'm making some posts on my blog about the 2012 olympic venues, usually I use 2 pictures for each venue, but I could only finf 1 picture of the Hockey center, do any of you have more pictures of that hockey stadium? Also some renders of North Greenwich 2 Arena would be welcome.
  25. Lisbon or Porto should bid to host one of these Sessions, Portugal is one of the best countries in the world when it comes to host these type of events. Great food and great weather, excellent conditions with great auditoriums.
